In 1472 Leonardo was already a member of the Painters Company. That’s how Anonimo Gaddiano remember him:

He really excelled in mathematics and not less in prospective arts, and practise sculpture, and on drawing he surpassed by far all the others. He made beautiful inventions, but didn’t coloured many things, because he was never satisfied, but his works are so precious. He was very eloquent in speech and excelled player of lyre […] and was very capable on design, nor he never had a calm mood, but he always constructed new things with his ingenuity”.
